Fee Schedule

Effective May 1, 2021 the Court will no longer accept cash as payment for any fees.  Debtors may pay only by MONEY ORDER or CASHIER'S CHECK, and no personal checks or credit/debit cards will be accepted from debtors. Those who are not debtors may pay by check, money order, or credit/debit card. 

Checks/money orders are to be made payable to: Clerk, US Bankruptcy Court.  If you have reviewed the Court’s Fee Schedule and are still uncertain about the total dollar amount for a money order or cashier’s check, you may call ahead to our ECF Help Desk at 1-800-442-6850 to confirm the total amount that you will need to pay.
